NADRA launches Contactless Biometric Verification Services

Pakistan’s National Database and Registration Authority (NADRA) has launched contactless biometric verification services for the banking and payments industry. This will enable businesses such as banks to make use of a digital app on smartphones when capturing and verifying biometrics of the potential account holders. The service is currently available for five banks included in a pilot phase. Once fully implemented,  other banks, financial institutions, as well as electronic money institutions will be included.
